If you’ve been living with a complexion that makes you unhappy, you’ll be relieved to know you don’t to endure it any longer.
Whether you’ve got minor sun damage, acne scars, or uneven pigmentation, a chemical peel is an effective way to improve your skin in just one treatment without undergoing any surgery.
Chemical peels serve a different purpose depending on how severe your skin flaws might be.
Chemical peels can be suitable for treating uneven pigment, acne or acne scars, or fine wrinkles. They could minimize deeper acne scars and wrinkles.
Peels could remove both the outermost layer of skin as well as the top part of the middle layer of the skin.
Chemical peels have helped with sun-damaged skin, scarring, or pre-cancerous growths. These peels may present some discomfort.

Types of Chemical Peels
There are a few different chemical peels. One peel involves Alphahydroxy acids, or glycolic acids, which is a mild solution. It can be used to develop smoother-looking skin.
Another peel is Trichloroacetic acid. While it is mainly used as a moderate or medium concentration, it is possible to be used for other concentrations. It can be used for handling pigment issues and wrinkles.
Phenol is another solution used for deeper penetration. It can be used for treating pre-cancerous growths.
What Makes an Eligible Candidate for a Chemical Peel
You’re not considered an ideal candidate for chemical peels if:
- you have a history of skin scarring
- you have used particular acne treatments in the 12 months prior to your peel
Chemical peels are a great way to improve your complexion without having to undergo an invasive surgery or painful injections.
It’s safe to repeat light and medium peels every few months, and each treatment gives your clearer, more even skin.
